Summer break . . . and the livin' ain't easy!
Just because the students at New York College have flown the coop doesn't mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells can relax. Fischer Hall is busier than ever, filled with squealing thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls attending the first ever Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp, hosted by pop sensation Tania Trace herself - who just happens to be newly married to Heather's ex-boyfriend, heartthrob Jordan Cartwright. But the real headache begins when the producer of a reality TV show starring Tania winds up dead . . . and it's clear that the star was the intended victim.
Grant Cartwright, head of Cartwright Records, wants to keep his daughter-in-law (and his highest-earning performer) alive. So he hires his oldest son, black sheep of the family and private investigator Cooper Cartwright - who just happens to be Heather's new fiancé. Heather should leave the detecting to Cooper. But with a dorm full of hysterical mini-divas-in-training, she can't help but get involved. And after Tania shares a really shocking secret with her, this reality suddenly becomes more dangerously real than anyone ever anticipated.

No, and its a shame, because the other audio books in the series were great, and got me invested into the series.
As usual Heather's interactions with the other characters in Fischer Hall is almost always just as good as the murder mystery.
Kristen Kairos or Justine Eyre. I think it's always better to have a constant voice be the voice of the series, and either Kairos or Eyre would have been best. Sadly, the fact if the matter is that Ms. Rustin didn't really seem to try, her interpretation of Gavin and the others was really just bad. Her narration of the story cost Meg Cabot a star.
When Tanya Trace described her first marriage.
This book managed to make Tanya Trace likable which was quite the feat when you consider that she was like a constant villain for the other three books. Overall, it was a awesome book, only slowed down by a bad narrator, who doesn't show any excitement for the book.
I have listened to other books in this series and really enjoyed them. I wasn't sure about this one with a different narrator than before but was pleasantly surprised. Sandy did a great job with all the characters. I look forward to hearing her again.
I've listened to the three previous Heather Wells mysteries and really enjoyed them. I was excited to hear there was another and immediately downloaded it. I was not disappointed. It took me awhile to get used to the reader, but after a period of adjustment, it worked for me.
I liked that we learn more about Heather and Copper's relationship and their relationship with his family, which includes Jordan Cartwright, Heather's ex and Cooper's brother and Tania Trace, the woman who broke up Heather and Jordan.
It was worth the use of my credit and I will listen to it again!
Heather Wells Rocks
The narrator does great as doing the voices with humor, wit, and all around fun.
yes if I had the time.
Nothing, I was so turned off by the the
nararator's voice I was unable to enjoy the story.
Hated her voice
Could not get through the first chapter!!
Set reviews to "Most Recent" instead of most helpful :) 32 yrs old and still Addicted to Happy Endings!!!
This book was wonderfully far fetched (like all the Heather Wells books before it), but it wasn't as funny or lighthearted with witty language. They didn't harp too much about her love of food (I LOVE food) and her band of misfit students are still there.....but when we suddenly start to feel sorry for Tonya Trace it became a bit too dramatic and no longer the light hearted far fetched murder mystery I expected.
I like Heather, and her misfit students, and Cooper, and am glad I read the book, but by the last 2 chapters I was ready for the drama to end...I wanted a bit more funny. I will not read this one again, but I am glad I read it once. Size 12, Size 14, and Big Boned were better.
I have already recommended this book and the entire series to friends. Heather Wells is great fun.
the narrator did not seem to have a good idea of the characters, many of the male characters all sound the same.
I really enjoyed this book, would have enjoyed it much more had Justine Eyre narrated.
